with us. sam, let's start off with you. speaker boehner says he's open to tax revenue, also spending cuts. similar to the speaker boehner before some of the house republicans got ahold of him, and he basically pulled back on a deal struck with the president. >> yeah. i mean, this is a complicated thing for speaker boehner because he doesn't have a lot of chips here. obama can sit on his hands and not sign any extension of the bush tax cuts. so he's got a very difficult task ahead. i think he has less leverage than in the summer of 2011. he signaled very publicly yesterday he's open to revenue raisers. what that constitutes is anyone's guess. it could be a magic dynamic growth stuff, but he realized at this jeng tunction tur he doesn have a lot of chips to play. he has to go back to his caucus and sell it. >> let's see what he said on reaching out to congressional republicans. let's play it please. >> that door is open. it has been open. what we want to do is break that misguided notion that somehow obstruction is a winning strategy and that partisan ship should take precedence over p

. >> the way we get things done is to work together. but we need republicans to help us. there's compromises not a dirty word. >> but we're already seeing statements like this one from senator mitch mcconnell who said last night, quote, now it's time for the president to propose solutions that actually have a chance of passing the republican-controlled house of representatives. perhaps setting the stage for further gridlock in washington, the results of the house where republicans maintained solid majority in the next hour we're expecting to hear of house speaker john boehner. right now, joining me, national syndicated talk show host michael smirconish and joe frolic for "the cleveland plain dealer." thank you all for joining. michael, when's the reaction you're hearing from people you talk to all day on the radio? >> nerds rule. >> we know that from high school. >> well, when all is said and done, though, the data trumped the emotion. there was a huge debate that broke out in the last couple of days. how could nate silver and the poll-driven individuals believe there's a 90% cha

and time again to say exactly that. what is next? who will come to help us? we don't have electricity. we don't have enough gasoline to run our generators. that's the situation. i brought over one of the residents who is here at staten island. what is next, richard? >> it's difficult to tell. i think we have a mayor who's only concern is manhattan, and we haven't seen a whole lot of help out here. fortunately, my wife and the neighborhood i'm in isn't in bad shape, but there are neighborhoods that are really decimated. it doesn't seem to me like the mayor is doing anything about it. we need gas. we need electricity. i saw two con-ed trucks and haven't seen any more on staten island. nothing is happening out here. we're getting pretty desperate >> reporter: thank you grur time. the best of luck to you in the days ahead. tamron, we're also hearing there's some conflict when it comes to hotel rooms where evacuees have been placed recently because of reservations for marathon runners coming to the city and some hotels having to say we already have guests that are booked. that's the situat

half, but nevertheless, it wasn't enough. what it became clear to us as things went on, when virginia and ohio weren't coming together, it looked to me some time early in the evening that it just wasn't going to happen. >> that's his reflection. but moving ahead, speaker boehner was asked whether paul ryan would be the leader of the party. he referred to him as the wonky guy. what are we to make of paul ryan? >> he is the wonky guy. that was a dismissive comment that the speaker made. what he was trying to say is that he's coming back here, the same guy, as when he left. he's going to be a voice on certain issues, but he's not going to be a leader in the party. >> thank you very much. a pleasure having both of you on today. thank you. >>> coming up, john maca fee, he's wanted for questioning in the murder of his neighbor. details ahead. >>> and just moments ago, president obama finished meeting with labor leaders at the white house. how much leeway will the left give the president when it comes to medicare and social security? that's a question posed by our first read team. we'll chec

, jim. we'll see what the next 48 hours bringi brings us. president has start aid meeting with siveng leaders to talk about this economy. earlier today the president metaphmet for the first time with congressional leaders to avoid the fiscal cliff we talked so much about. both sides emerged saying they are willing to make one choices. the one word they all used to describe the meeting was constructive. >> our challenge is to make sure that, you know, we are able it to cooperate together, work together, find some common ground, make some tough compromises, build some consensus to do the people's business. >> to show our seriousness, we've put revenue on the table, as long as it's accompanied by significant spending cuts. >> let me bring in nbc news white house correspondent kristen welker. from those two sound bites alone, one would think things are a lot better than when this battle was forged before. >> reporter: well, i think that both sides feel a fresh urgency to get something done. you're absolutely right, tamron. they know they can't have the same sort of disastrous debacle happ

for change. help us win this. paul ryan and i going to bring real change to america from day one. >> joining me now is anne kornbluth and michael skirmonish and chris kofinis. we haven't had a chance to talk with you for a couple of days. your studio was affected by the storm, like so many who planned to vote in new jersey and new york. we'll get to that. what's your feeling right now? you sat back out of the media glare and digest this as a regular voter in some ways. >> i think that passion is the intangible. you can't measure. you can't poll passion. i buy into the numbers because they seem to be fairly uniform, that it's within a whisker on a popular vote contest. there's an advantage for president obama. the one intangible for governor romney is the level of passion xhfs on the president's side four years ago but is on governor romney's side come together. what does it mean? it means the president is a favorite going into it, but i wouldn't be surprised by any outcome come wednesday. >> let me bring you in on this, anne. everybody says they have the best game on the ground a

would like to see between democrats and republicans and so i think all of us have responsibilities to see if there are things to improve on. and i don't exempt myself from needing to, you know, do some self reflection and see if i can improve our working relationship. there are probably going to be still be some sharp differences and as i said during the campaign there are going to be times there's fights and i think those are fights this need to be had but what i think the american people don't want to see is a focus on the next election instead of a focus on them. and i don't have another election. and, you know, michele and i were talking last night about, you know, what an incredible honor and privilege it is to be put in this position. and there are people all across this country, millions of folks who worked so hard to help us get elected but there are also millions of people who may not have voted for us but are counting on us. and, you know, we take that responsibility very seriously. i take that responsibility very seriously. and i hope and intend to be an even better preside

important for us to come to an agreement with the president, and by lowering rates and cleaning up the tax code, we know that we're going to get more economic growth. >> here's what's at stake if they cannot come to a compromise. the congressional budget office says it would happen. the alternative minimum tax kicks in hiking taxes with more than half of married couples two children by $4,000 a year. it would ray taxes on workers and the trillion dollars in spending cuts that officials say cost jobs and slow economic growth. let me bring in our "news nation" political panel. we have zachary karabell and loy wis romano and david goodfriend. we have it covered. jonathan, i'll start with you. comparing what we heard from speaker boehner this morning and what we heard from the president, it sounds like two people who really want to find some kind of deal here. i think the president sounds similar to what he sounded like before re-election, quite honestly. >> he does. his decision hasn't changed but elections have consequences. they were close in july of 2011 on a grand bargain. the big questio

[ male announcer ] along with support, chantix is proven to help people quit smoking. it reduces the urge to smoke. it put me at ease that you could smoke on the first week. [ male announcer ] some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. if you notice any of these stop taking chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of depression or other mental health problems, which could get worse while taking chantix. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you develop these stop taking chantix and see your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. if you have a history of heart or blood vessel problems, tell your doctor if you have new or worse symptoms. get me

long history of the fbi going back to j. edgar hoover where he was using these kinds of secrets that he was uncovering for political blackmail, if you will. now you have the fbi investigating accidentally stumbling into something where the investigation turns briefly until they shut it down to the director of central intelligence. that's a big deal. the question is, how do you handle it? do you just shut it down once you realize there's no criminality involved or it's a personal indiscretion, or do you report it up the change of command? that's the question that is going to be raised. >> of course, i think the larger question, though, still remains, the investigation regarding benghazi. this was ongoing before this scandal and if this affair was revealed, you have general petraeus making a trip to libya two weeks before all of this was revealed. how can there be a hearing and he not participate in this hearing, andrea? >> well, i think what senator feinstein has come to conclude is he has to participate. perhaps not at this first session. this is not an option session but a closed se
